Opioid Addiction Treatment

Opioid Addiction in Georgia

Opioids are a family of drugs that reduce pain. The chemicals trigger intense feelings of euphoria, relaxation, and overall well-being.

Georgia is combatting the worst drug crisis in history:

  • The number of opioid-related overdose deaths in Georgia surged from 853 to 1,718, a 101% uptick from 2019 – 2021. Fentanyl-fueled overdose deaths increased by 232.1%. 

  • In 2021, 718 out of 2,390 overdose deaths in Georgia were from opioids. 

  • In 2020, around 20,000 middle and high school students admitted to taking pain medication not prescribed in the past 30 days.

  • From 2010 – 2019, opioid-involved overdose deaths increased by 78% in Georgia, from 514 to 913 deaths.

  • From 2019 – 2021, hospital trips for drug overdoses shot up 10%, from 24,886 to 27,388. 

  • 44% of children who entered foster care in 2018 did so due to parental substance abuse.

The signs and symptoms of opioid addiction can resemble other substances like alcohol addiction. However, this nimble narcotic has a deadly quality unlike any other.

Recognizing the signs and symptoms of opioid addiction can help you or a loved one decide on substance abuse treatment. 

  • Socially withdrawn or isolated, lying, stealing, borrowing money

  • Slurred or incoherent speech, lack of coordination, “nodding out”

  • Doctor shopping, forging prescriptions, secretive

  • Missing work, quality of work declines

  • Isolation from loved ones and periods of absence

  • Alternating between constipation and diarrhea

  • Scabs, sores, or puncture wounds suggestive of IV drug use

  • Changes in appearance, weight loss 

  • Disorientation, inability to concentrate or communicate

  • Poor impulse control, risky behavior, lack of good decision making

  • Depression, anxiety

  • Needing to take more of the drug to get the same effect (tolerance, a sign of physical dependence)

This addiction doesn’t stop until it’s taken everything. Overdoses have become the leading cause of accidental death in the United States.

Types of Opioid Addictions We Treat

The opioid family of drugs covers three types:

  • Natural opioids occur in the opium poppy plant, which includes morphine and codeine.

  • Semi-synthetic is made in labs from natural opioids such as oxycodone (OxyContin), hydrocodone (Vicodin), hydromorphone, and oxymorphone. Heroin also falls in this category as a Schedule I drug made from morphine. 

  • Fully-synthetic opioids include fentanyl, tramadol, and methadone.

Our Opioid Detox Center in Georgia

When you stop using opioids, you’ll feel the side effects of withdrawal. These inevitable symptoms range from unpleasant to unbearable. 

The level of intensity varies based on your usage habits. The distress of the experience can often lead back to using. We strongly recommend a medical detox equipped to manage this process smoothly and with care. 

We strive to create a relaxing and safe environment to cleanse your body. Our dedicated staff monitors your detox 24/7. We’re here to ensure you stay stable and comfortable. Our rehab centers offer medication-assisted treatment that helps relieve the unsavory side effects.

Opioid withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Anxiety, confusion

  • Insomnia and restlessness

  • Hot and cold flushes

  • Perspiration

  • Abdominal cramping 

  • Muscle spasms and leg tremors 

  • Watery discharge from eyes and nose

  • Diarrhea

  • Cravings for opioids

Detoxing from these potent drugs on your own can be challenging and dangerous. Treatment at a reputable rehab center ensures you have the right tools, including medicines, counseling, and support to fight back.

Here are some of our medications:

  • Suboxone treats cravings and side effects.

  • Vivitrol reduces cravings which can prevent relapse.

  • Naltrexone also reduces cravings and reverses the effects of an overdose. 

  • Clonidine relieves the physical symptoms of withdrawal.

Our highly trained medical professionals specializing in drug addiction and mental health know what works. Treating co-occurring disorders is the most impactful approach because these conditions are often connected.

Our opioid addiction treatment programs can include the following:

  • Detoxification

  • Residential

  • Intensive Outpatient Rehabilitation

  • Partial Hospitalization 

  • Sober Living

Our Georgia rehab center’s medical detox program sets the stage for long-term recovery. Successful detoxification greatly improves the chances of maintaining sobriety. 

After detox, our team will recommend an addiction treatment program that best fits your individual needs.

Our Residential Treatment

Our residential program, or inpatient, is our highest level of care for clients who need around-the-clock support in the beginning stages of addiction recovery.  Our state-of-the-art treatment facility provides an intimate setting that promotes effective healing and fosters a sense of community. 

This immersive program combines individual and group counseling with various holistic therapies to heal your mind, body, and spirit. We guide our clients to learn how to manage withdrawal symptoms, combat cravings, and foster a healthier lifestyle. 

Our Intensive Outpatient Program

Our intensive outpatient program (IOP) bridges the gap between rehab and the real world to stay sober long-term. Our program provides support and opportunity for personal growth without drugs or drinking. It offers different options, like weekly therapy sessions, working, volunteering, and joining support groups. 

We emphasize communication, socialization, structure, and discipline to combat risk factors for relapse to strike a balance between work and sobriety.

Our Partial Hospitalization Program

Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) is an outpatient level of care that meets daily on weekdays providing around the clock structure at a more affordable price. PHPs fit the need of those who require more guidance than standard outpatient treatment but do not need 24-hour supervision.

We make our program feel like the real world, so clients can learn how to adjust to their daily lives. This intense program requires clients to attend group therapy sessions every day. You must have completed medical detox to ensure you’re ready to benefit from therapy.

Continuing Recovery Through Sober Living

Our sober homes create an accepting environment free of drugs and alcohol for individuals in recovery. Our addiction recovery housing provides 24-hour support, access to valuable resources, including job training and education, and a nurturing community in recovery. 

Combining sober living with our PHP or IOP builds a foundation for long-term recovery while providing accountability in a healthy environment.
